Militia Thugs, Fresh From Iranian Training, Return To Baghdad
— Ace

Dire news. But I suppose it was inevitable. And, I suppose, also necessary. They'll have to be beaten at some point.

Shi'ite militiamen, who melted away from Baghdad when U.S. and Iraqi troops began their security crackdown seven weeks ago, are rolling back into the city with fresh Iranian training, Iraqi and other officials said.

It is not clear whether the radical Shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is in control of the newly trained group, which some Iraqis describe as a "secret army" trained and equipped by Iran.

U.S. forces are concerned that, despite Shi'ite leaders' assurances that they have pulled their fighters off the streets, uncooperative militias will return and seek to destabilize efforts to secure the city.

Videotapes and other evidence of Iranian propaganda have been found on people recently detained in Sadr City, said a member of one of the multiple Iraqi and U.S. security forces trying to return security to Baghdad.


A new element appears to be entering the territory: an extreme Mahdi Army splinter group that broke off from Sheik al-Sadr, went to Iran for training and started to return, said one Iraqi with intimate knowledge of the group.

"This is a special group, used for special operations, not controlled by Muqtada al-Sadr. This is a secret army," said the Iraqi, who asked not to be identified for fear of reprisals. "They work for Iranian intelligence. They have good weapons, good salary."

The group's objectives are not clear, but the Iraqi said he thought the goal was to exacerbate simmering strife between Sunnis and Shi'ites.

The daily number of sectarian executions is creeping up again in some neighborhoods of Baghdad, despite an enormous coordinated security effort by U.S. and Iraqi forces that has reduced incidents of violence.

Thanks to amish.

A lot of the news from Iraq seems to also include Iran. I hope there are some serious contingency plans to deal with their meddleing in the works.

Along with a boatload of documentation to back up actions. Not that the nutroots will believe it anyways.

Have'nt heard anything for a couple of weeks on the Iranian general that "defected". I wonder what's up with that?

2 There is a showdown brewing.  How long can we just shrug this shit off?

3 I seem to recall several people (like the President and the commanding General in Iraq) say something about good days and bad days.  This is a bad day.

Of course, I am sure the fine folks of the MSM will embargo this bad news as well as they have the good news. Cause they're fair like that.  Right?

4 The WashintonTimes?

You're stupid for believing this bullshit.

But, you'll get your war, no doubt. And when it comes, there is no doubt who is on the wrong side of history. Again.

So true, so true.

Say little buddy, would you mind posting your gps coordinates?

Save us the trouble of calling NSA.

9 Hey Ali, don't sweat it. The more they send, the more we kill. The more we kill, the less of them are left to make trouble for the rest of the world. And if Admadinnerjacket wants to keep mocking Dubya and pressing his buttons, fine. Obviously the Lord High Mahdi has never seen "Shane" or "High Noon". You know, where the decent, slow to act cowboy gets pushed around by the unshaven scuzzy bad cowboys and nobody is on his side, so he finally decides that enough is enough, and shoots them all dead?

Oh, and by the way, Dubya like all good cowboys got Saddam the Killer a fair trial before he was hanged. Just a reminder to all those loudmouths in Tehran. Until January 20, 2009, the Texas Cowboy is still sheriff in this here town. Watch your step. We still have lots of rope.

10 We'll soon see what an attack on Iran does to our military. Bush could lose an army. But that'd be cool, for you fuckers. Somewhere between 300 and dancing with the stars on the rightwing cultural likert scale.

btw. 300 is pure homoerotica for dudes who think they hate fags.
What a dumb film.

We'll soon see what an attack on Iran does to our military.

My guess is that an attack on Iran will kill somewhere around 40% of your military, not to mention whatever  goats they happen to be humping at the time. 

You'd better get all this funny shit posted quickly Ali, I doubt you'll have electricity to run that little shitbox computer of yours much longer.

Hey, I've always liked that video of the crazed rabble dumping the stinking corpse of Khomenei out of his coffin in the middle of the fucking street.  Is that an Iranian tradition?   I'd love to see that clip again.

13 Only the dumbest motherfucker, or lawraw, on earth would believe the u.s. can win a war with iran.

Iran is a natural ally. But cheney fucked that up.

You dumbasses are as wrong about the coming war as you are about the present war. Because you are ignorant fuckheads. Know-nothing fuckheads.

That's why you read the WashingtonTimes. Tools.

And when bush loses your precious army, you'll blame "the librawls." Whoever they are.
